    All series talk goes in here. Non series talk goes somewhere else. No PBP, that can be found from other sources if you need it. All games are broadcast on AT&T Sports SW unless otherwise noted.

    8-1 Nathan Eovaldi (R) vs. Luis Garcia (R) 7:10 ESPN only

    8-2 TBD vs. Cristian Javier (R) 7:10

    8-3 TBD vs. Jose Urquidy 1:10

    The Red Sox have been in absolute free fall. Their starting pitching has been terrible, their bullpen has been even worse, and they have been playing defense that would make little leaguers roll their eyes.

    So we're probably dropping 2 out of 3.

    Yep. Eovaldi salvages some trade value with a 7 inning 12k performance tonight.

    I would say that the Red Sox come in limping into this series, but that would be disrespectful to the word limping.

    I think they should trade us JD for Odorizzi.

    If there is high interest in Eovaldi, I would not be surprised if someone else got the start tonight. Teams interested in him may not want to wait 5 extra days to get a start out of him.

    Really hoping for a sweep this series. Mariners and Yankees play each other. A sweep would either mean Astros lead/tied for 1st in AL overall or Mariners fans get their delusions of grandeur crushed.
